North Korean gymnast defects by vaulting fences

A North Korean gymnast has escaped to South Korea by swinging himself over the border barricades without triggering sensors, according to reports.

The man, reported to be in his 20s, surrendered after a manhunt by the South Korean military discovered a breach.

The troops had engaged in an operation near the heavily fortified border in Goseong, after detecting "unidentified personnel" there, the South's military said on November 4.

The unnamed man was detained without incident and asked for asylum, prompting an investigation into his claims and the breach.
